The Preys

Man, you eat that shit up and be
Like, so proud of yourself!
I said, “You got conned, man!”
And you said, “Yeah, like millions of others!
But why are you attacking me?
It’s not nice!” and I said,
“Yeah, it’s not nice, so I’ma shut my mouth
But you gotta stop saying those things so loud
‘Cause it makes me want to be not nice!”

‘Cause most people are preys
And they prefer to stay that way
What good would it do
To tell you the truth?
You’d rather stay deluded

The predators just take one look at you
And know you’re gonna be hooked
It’s in your eyes, it’s in your look
It’s in your voice, in the way you shook
When they said all those grandiose things
Yours for the sucking, theirs for the taking
You lay it down for them to trample over
And you say “thank you, please do it again all over!”

‘Cause most people are preys
And they prefer to stay that way
What good would it do
To tell you the truth?
You’d rather stay deluded

You like simple feel-good stuff
Not the instrospective, complicated shit
Self-reflection is a beast
That you try to avoid at all costs
Sensational is all you’ve got
In your blood and in your thoughts
They’re pumping that stuff out like crazy
And you’re hitting it up like ecstasy!

‘Cause most people are preys
And we prefer to stay that way
What good would it do
To be told the truth?
We’d rather stay deluded

Well, when I lay my head down tonight
I’ma try to cross it off my mind
I’ma stop saying these things not nice
‘Cause what good it’d do to tell you
That most people are preys
Waiting for the thrill of their lives
To make it all worthwhile,
To be killed…
